Abundance of Rain

I KINGS 18:41
And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.

We have been encouraged as of late. We have heard of many testimonies of how God has visited and is visiting His people. We have baptized many in water and look to see the fulfilling of scripture which also promises the baptism of the Holy Ghost. The promise is unto us and to our children and those that are afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call. We should live under expectation for a visitation from the Spirit of the Lord.  I love the following scripture and I encourage you to keep the faith while you are waiting on God to visit you with a filling or refilling of the Holy Ghost.

HEBREWS 10:35-37
35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

I also encourage you to rest in this quote as well. While resting, keep praying and fasting.

ISRAEL.AND.THE.CHURCH.3_ JEFF.IN IC 65-96 FRIDAY_ 53-0327
And I believe God’s going to fill this church with the Holy Ghost, till you hear a scream that’ll–that’ll swing out through Jeffersonville here. I’m waiting and praying every day and night, waiting just for the crucial moment. You keep fasting, keep praying; getting the kids together, get rid of all the sin around your home, as Jacob said, “Take off your earrings and wash your garments.” Get ready. Oh, I hear the sound of abundance of rain.

Delivered – House of Hell Give Way

We were blessed by a message Bro. Caleb Wesco preached entitled “This Current Giant”. He provided a quote that I felt was worth sharing. I realize there are saints who are bound by giants just as Israel was stuck when Goliath would make his boasts. Often times we do not choose to be bound. Life has a way of presenting circumstances that bring us into bondage and at times misunderstandings can lead to walls of division, which also lead to bondage. If you feel this is for you, then know that you can be delivered. You may feel you cannot get out of what you are in, but we speak to your condition, “house of hell give way, to the Name of Jesus Christ”. Be free my brother or my sister. The time of your deliverance is now.

I pray you will be encouraged by this quote from Bro. Branham that Bro. Caleb shared with us during his message on Friday night.

Now, this is only a dream. And I walked over this a-way and I seen a–a brother, Roy Borders, a very good friend of mine, lives in California. Looked like there’s something wrong, his eyes was half closed, and great big… maybe cancer or something over his eyes. And I… someone was trying to pull me away from him. I screamed, “Brother Borders! In the Name of the Lord Jesus, snap out of that!”

And he just barely could speak, saying, “Brother Branham, it’ll have to take something more than this. I just can’t grasp it, Brother Branham. I just can’t grasp it.”
I said, “O Brother Borders.” I love him.

And someone pulled me away, and I looked, and it was a lady standing over here. The… when I was a little boy, I–I used to haul groceries from the grocery store to the peoples. And her name was Mrs. Fenton, she lives in Jeffersonville yet, a personal friend to the wife and I.
And she said, “Brother Branham, deliver us from this.” Said, “This is a house of hell.” And said, “You’ve been misunderstood.” And said, “These… And you–you misunderstood these people, too.” Said, “These are fine people, but…” And I looked over there, and like a great big cellar, or–or big walls, down beneath a great big cave; and great iron bars, eight or ten inches thick. And people, out of their mind, twisted arms and legs, beating their head like that. And she was crying, saying, “Deliver the people, Brother Branham.” Said–said, “Help us, we’re in trouble.” She herself, I know her, she belongs to the… I believe the Church of Christ, or the Christian church, called Church of the Brethren. So she…

I looked around, and I said, “I wished I could.” And go on, looking around; and I… my little, bitty body and–and them great, big iron bars; and those poor people in there. And you couldn’t get to them, them iron bars was setting close together. And I looked, and they were beating their head like they were out of their mind.
And I seen some lights flickering around in there. And I looked up, and there stood the Lord Jesus with a–a–a lights of rainbow around Him. He was looking right straight to me, said, “Deliver those people.” And He went away.
And I thought, “Well, how could I deliver them? I–I haven’t got strength enough in my arms to break those bars.”
So I said, “House of hell, give away to the Name of Jesus Christ.”
And all the creaking and popping, and–and the rocks a-rolling, and–and bars a-falling; and people running, screaming, “Delivered!” and screaming at the top of their voice, and was all delivered.
